Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?
This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.
The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "🔗 Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.
- For the best of general news, it doesn't get better than Dave Pell's free daily email update called NextDraft. He scours the internet for 10 interesting, relevant and well written pieces, and adds his witty, dry humour as he introduces them. There's an iOS app or a daily email, and it's free! Between Stratechery and NextDraft, you're well covered!
- If you are building a SaaS product, you definitely need to follow this. The habits that will help you make a good product. He not only curates good articles from various sources, but also writes from his vast experience in products such as hello bar, kissmetrics, crazy egg, quicksprout etc.
- For interesting and insightful tech analysis, it's probably one of the best newsletters out there. Was recommended by one of the Atlassian founders at an event and it's well worth the monthly cost of $10 or so (for the daily email). There is also a weekly update that is free if you first want to get a feel for it. Ben also co-hosts the Exponent podcast - which is also pretty good!
